Upcycling means reusing a specific material or product, but in a way that differs from the original use. If the original product is left intact, its shape, expression or material can be reused for another purpose.
Examples include car tires used as swings or other playground equipment, a cork board made from cork, or using leftovers to make new blankets.
The finest yarn leftovers from silk, linen or cashmere meet noble fabric patterns, knitted loops and coupons made from the highest quality materials and textures to tell new, unique stories together. With supporting roles, red threads, casual stitches and entangled situations. And of course, unexpected turning points. This is how our LPJ unique pieces are created.
Many well-known fashion companies already support the work of LPJ with high-quality textile remnants, which are transformed into exclusive living and feel-good companions in the design headquarters in Aschau am Chiemsee.
The entire production chain is fair and regionally structured and thus represents a conscious counterpart to conventional textile mass production. From the idea to the concept, from the individual piece to the collection, through to production and delivery, we not only think and manufacture professionally, but also in an obvious way – in our own regional workshops or with partners who share the same philosophy.
Residual substances are other substances or materials that occur, for example, through waste during production or through miscalculation of goods. These leftovers are new, and are often sent to landfill even though they are in pristine condition and made specifically for production.
This creates large amounts of avoidable waste. LPJ Studios uses these leftovers and gives them a second chance in the form of unique & designer pieces.

Upcycling describes a process in which waste products and seemingly useless raw materials are processed into a new product. We do this with tabs, for example:
